APC supports New York bills to allow office-use veterinary compounding

Two companion bills in front of the New York State legislature would permit compounding pharmacists to supply veterinarians with office-use medication so long as those meds were “prescribed or ordered by any [licensed] practitioner of veterinary medicine.”

APC this week wrote to New York Senate and Assembly leaders to urge passage of the bills, S4247 and A6704.

We support the proposed legislation because we believe it will serve the needs of veterinarians to have wider access to the compounded medications they require for their patients. It will also ensure that those medications are
provided in a manner that protects the public safety.
